Germany: Truck Plows Through Christmas Market Killing Patrons

Terrorism suspected – truck ploughs into crowd at Berlin Christmas market, 12 dead

A truck ploughed into a crowded Christmas market in central Berlin on Monday evening, killing 12 people and injuring 48 others in what Germany’s interior minister said looked like an attack.

Police said on Twitter that they had taken one suspect into custody and that another passenger from the truck had died as it crashed into people gathered around wooden huts serving mulled wine and sausages at the foot of the Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church in the heart of former West Berlin.


German media cited local security sources as saying that there was evidence suggesting the arrested suspect was from Afghanistan or Pakistan and entered Germany in February as a refugee.

Second instance of a truck used as a weapon to kill people.

These people are basically individual sleeper cells who could snap at any time.
